In 2012, one hundred and thirty five Orthodox Christians shared their faith through loving service as part of mission teams sponsored by the Orthodox Christian Mission Center. They witnessed baptisms, healed the sick, strengthened the foundations of the Church, and brought the love of Christ to people around the world. They answered the call to make disciples of all nations.
Is 2013 your time to share in this journey of faith?
